Today a fine man came to our house in a big green "Brave Fréres" truck and refilled the oil which powers our water heater. How he backed his oil truck through the very narrow L-shaped alley and down the winding hill to our house is beyond me, truly.
The weather went from overcast to sunny and then back and forth again and again, all the while staying a pleasant 70º (20º C). We went to the Lake of St. Pée where there's a park on the lakeshore for kids; We collected acorns, watched swans. Later we went for a drive to Anglet and saw the sun set in the harbor.
